WATCH: Mabkhout scores hat-trick as Al Jazira beat Shabab Al Ahli

Al Jazira kicked off the 2018/19 Arabian Gulf League League season with a dramatic 5-4 win against Shabab Al Ahli in Dubai.

Shabab Al Ahli had raced into 3-1 first half lead, before a quick-fire Ali Mabkhout hat-trick (40, 43, 50) turned the match on its head.

Henrique Luvannor squared the match in the 77th minute from a penalty spot after a long delay during which the referee consulted VAR.

With three minutes to go Khalfan Mubarak curled in a brilliant free-kick to ensure Al Jazira returned to the capital with all three points
